Rohr Steel Homes in Riverside?

Postby Keith York » Mon Oct 05, 2009 7:53 am

A San Diego developer is currently demolishing a development of steel homes by Donald Wexler. In my research on this project I uncovered a 1963 article in the San Diego Union discussing the (at the time) proposed project of 1,000 units in partnership with US Steel and Rohr. Rohr apparently designed and built (at least 3) steel homes in partnership with Modular Components Corp. of Riverside -- in Riverside. Does anyone have any information on these Riverside homes I could compare/contrast with the San Diego project?
